SurLaLune reader Christina shared in her entry for the SurLaLune Fairy Tales Giveaway that her holiday fairy tale wishlist item is Jesa Marshall's "Vaslav" necklace. What is that, I wondered. So I went looking and discovered a line of Firebird inspired jewelry by artist Jesa Marshall. Do follow the link to see more--I just picked some of my favorites to share with you here, including Christina's Vaslav.
About Jesa Marshall:
Inspired by dark fairytales, nature and storytelling Jesa combines precious metals and gemstones with tiny sculptures of Crows, hares, moths and other creatures to create her internationally popular ‘Enchanted’ Collection. Twisted rose vines, gnarly trees and a touch of darkness come together to create a captivatingly original collection of jewellery.
At International Jewellery London, 2012 Jesa launched 'Firebird'. Inspired by a picture book celebrating 100 years of Stravinsky's 'Firebird' and re-telling a version of the original Russian Fairytale, 'Firebird' is a dark but beautiful world of wolves, wild woodlands, and of course, the fantastically elegant firebird.
